Parking assist "disabled" - Town Car Lincoln Cars & Trucks

  • jrbrunt Apr 05, 2009

    Most every time I shift into reverse, usually after a few beeps, I get the message " parking assist disabled".  Is this a simple reprogramming fix or is something really broken?

2002 yukon parking assist quit working


{: ) I wonder what quit do you mean? But anyway, there are certain conditions that can disable your park assist temporarily, like the park brakes on, park assist switch disable on, an object is attached to the rear of the vehicle, dirty sensors, overspeed, speed sensors malfunction and more.
If ever one of your sensors are not working, or maybe a module or wiring problem, then it can permanently disable the park assist system, unless the problem is quickly addressed.
The most practical and fast way of tracing the cause is to use a scan tool. It will read all the codes and datas that are relevant to the problem, it can also tell which of the four sensors are at fault, thereby reducing the time of guessing.
For the moment, you can check the VEH B/U fuse 10amp at the underhood fuseblock, and IGN 1 fuse 10amps at the IP fuseblock. Goodluck.

How do I get rid of my "Service Park Assist" message?


{: ) The "Service Park Assist" message cannot be erased or reset until the main cause of the problem is resolved. It will just keep on coming back. Let's say one or more of the park assist sensors are faulty, you should have it repaired or replaced first before the scan tool can successfully clear the trouble codes that were present then.
The SERVICE PARK ASSIST message is a reminder that a fault has been detected by the parking assist system and it will disable this system until the problem is being addressed. A scan tool can effectively trace the cause of the fault.

My park assit is on and the sensor are not working for backing up can they have dirt in them


{: ) The PARK ASSIST OFF message will be displayed when the parking assist system is disabled due to conditions that disable or inhibit the system. The object alarm module requests the DIC display PARK ASSIST OFF when it detects one of the following conditions:
• The parking assist system is manually disabled using the driver information center (DIC). • An object is attached to the rear of the vehicle, such as a trailer, bicycle rack, trailer hitch receiver, or tow bar. • The object alarm sensors are covered by snow, mud, dirt, slush, or ice. • The vehicle bumper is damaged. • Excessive paint thickness on a replacement object alarm sensor. • The object alarm sensors are disrupted by vibrations, like those caused by a large nearby vehicle or from heavy equipment such as a jackhammer.

The SERVICE PARK ASSIST message will be displayed when the object alarm module detects a malfunction in the parking assist system and the system is disabled. It could be one of your sensors is at fault or even the module.

The park assist service light comes on when i start the vehicle. i do not have an owners manual to reference.


{: ) The driver information center (DIC) displays SERVICE PARK ASSIST when the object alarm module detects a malfunction in the parking assist system and the system is disabled. The DIC also displays SERVICE PARK ASSIST when a loss of communication occurs with the object alarm module. Usually this is caused by faulty components or wirings. Better visit your dealer if still under warranty, for one park assist sensor only costs too much. If your bumper had been knocked off or had previous repairs outside the dealership, that's another thing.

I'm pulling a trailer and "Park Asst Blocked" light came on the dash. Is it ok to drive with that light on?


{: ) When the park assist system detects a hitched object behind your vehicle, it will normally display that "Park assist Blocked" message. You can still drive safely even with that message. When you're done, just remove the hook off. Turn off engine for a few minutes. turn it on again and drive your truck around for 30kmh or so, then test again the park assist system.

Park assist warning came on.


{: ) SERVICE PARK ASSIST The driver information center (DIC) displays SERVICE PARK ASSIST when the park assist module detects a malfunction in the object detection system and sends a request to the DIC for display of the message. The DIC also displays SERVICE PARK ASSIST when there is a loss of communication with the park assist module.
PARK ASSIST OFF The PARK ASSIST OFF message is displayed in the DIC when the park assist system is disabled due to conditions that disable or inhibit the system. The red LED in the rear display, as well as, the telltale in the switch will be lit, notifying the driver the PARK ASSIST system is disabled. The object alarm module requests the DIC via the serial data circuit to display PARK ASSIST OFF when it detects that one of the following conditions is true:
• The object alarm system is disabled through DIC vehicle customization feature. Refer to the Owners Manual for more information. • An object is attached to the rear of the vehicle, such as a trailer, bicycle rack, or hitch receiver. • An object is hanging out of the endgate. • The park brake is not fully released. • The system receives vibrations from a large nearby vehicle or from a heavy equipment such as a jackhammer. In the case of objects attached to the rear of the vehicle such as a trailer, hitch receiver, or a bicycle rack, or objects hanging out of the endgate, the rear parking assist (RPA) will have an Automatic Object induced disable feature where the RPA will determine if the rear object is moving with the vehicle. If the RPA detects such a condition, the park assist will be disabled. The PARK ASSIST OFF message will continue to be displayed until the trailer hitch receiver is removed and the vehicle is driven forward above 24 km/h (15 mph).
